Inheriting a love for old skool soul from her father (the likes of Otis Redding and Donny Hathaway) and combining it with a love for neo soul such as Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, SABRI quickly created her own distinct identity. After completing her bachelor's degree, SABRI decided to pack her bags and leave her home in The Netherlands to take some time to develop her songwriting skills in New York City. While working on projects for other artists SABRI quickly discovered her lane and sound as an artist and decided to begin releasing her own music. She released her first single "Lost In You" June of 2019, which garnered attention internationally. After releasing the track SABRI was voted in as a 3FM talent and "Lost in You" quickly became a success on Dutch radio. It went on to reach number 14 on Spotify’s Viral 50 in the Netherlands. SABRI has been able to reach millions of streams with her singles since then and all doing this while being independent.
